In this companion to his 2015 zine "10 Reasons Books Matter," Timothy Young (Curator, Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library, Yale University) elaborates on the many ways that libraries, literal and conceptual, hold value for individuals and society. "10 Reaons Libraries Matter" is, like its predecessor, designed by Elana Schlenker for Risograph on archival quality paper. Each copy, when folded and glued, mimics the form of a miniature book and fits inside a custom-stamped library card pocket!
You can order a copy pre-finished or as an unfinished DIY sheet that takes about five minutes to make yourself (instructions included). This new zine is also available here paired with "10 Reasons Books Matter."
A Spanish-language version of the "Books Matter" zine is available through Maquina de Aplausos.
